Come celebrate Pi Day and help improve coverage of STEM topics on Wikipedia. The edit-a-thon will include tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, ongoing editing support, reference materials, and refreshments. This event is free, and people of all gender identities and expressions are encouraged to participate.

Wikipedia for Educators at Fordham (fordham.edu/wikipedia) supports and promotes the use of Wikipedia in the classroom, organizes edit-a-thons on campus, and promotes Wikipedia events in the community. This is an open group made up of Fordham faculty, staff, and students, as well as NYC residents.

Faculty, staff, and students who edit Wikipedia share their scholarly expertise to evaluate articles, analyzing the content and quality of sources. And it also provides an opportunity to model and teach digital citizenship skills. These are just some of the benefits of getting involved with Wikipedia-based projects
